Author(s): Beasley, Sarah C.
Are you doing all you can for the well-being of your pet? Many pet guardians struggle with this question in relation to adopting versus buying, how best to raise and train animals, and how to approach the aging, sickness, and death passage. Structured around the Six Perfections of Mahayana Buddhism, this book provides answers to these questions and more with heartfelt guidance on how to apply mindfulness and spirituality to our relationships with animals. As well as being a practical resource, this book serves as a form of advocacy to encourage readers to think and feel more deeply and naturally about caring for the creatures--both pets and wildlife--that we share our world with.
